The legend (myth?) of the hairy, man-like creature will be celebrated on Oct. 13 at Albatwitch Day in Columbia.
Held by the Columbia Preservation Society, the all-day event will be in the 200 Block of Locust Street. The festival features live musical performances, lectures, trolley rides and a pie-eating contest. Kid-friendly activities such as face painting and $5 trolley rides will also be available.
